Male Birthday Card

Hello, I hope you are all doing ok and enjoying the weekend. I haven't done much crafting recently as life has gotten in the way, but here is a Birthday Card that I managed to squeeze in last week. It was for a male birthday, but my mojo had gone and so was really glad when I opened my Papercraft Essentials Magazine and there was a lovely Birthday Embossing Folder. So I kinda made this card up as I went along.

 I embossed two pieces of Kraft Card and cut out the Happy Birthday panel and Parcel on one... coloured the details with Red Fineliner. Then cut out a Star and used some Authentique paper to add a bit of interest. There are a couple of  wee Red Gems to finish off, but they don't show up very well in photo. And that's it... quite a simple design but not too plain.... I love how it came out. 

It was my Mum's Birthday yesterday and she loved her Autumn Leaves Card btw... and yes it did make her smile... so I was happy! :-)

My daughter is home this weekend so think we are going to watch The Holiday later! 
Hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend!
Take Care
Love and Hugs

Hey Sue, thank you so much for all the lovely comments you always leave me. You make me feel all warm and fuzzy.
I love this card - what a great use of a fussy folder - embossing it in kraft is a stroke of genius. Cx
